  • Her father was a prominent Dublin lawyer whose firm was mentioned in James Joyce's Ulysses. Turned down her first opportunity at acting at age 18 in a "bit part" offered by her aunt Shelah Richards at the Abbey Theatre because she wanted to make her own way. Appeared opposite Orson Welles in the production of Heartbreak House at Broadway's Gate Theatre in 1938. In 1960 was recognised with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard, for her contributions to motion pictures. In 1968 she collaborated with Franciscan brother, Jonathon Ringkamp, on a free community theatre project, and three years later, they formed the Everyman Company. Received a Mayor John Lindsay award for her community theater work and awarded an honorary doctorate of Fine Arts for her contribution to the youth of New York. Suffered from Alzheimer's disease for a decade and died at her home in Upper East Side of Manhattan from an infection after respiratory difficulties. Was a cousin of the Australian writer, Nevil Shute, whose novel On The Beach was made into a film in 1959 starring Gregory Peck and Ava Gardner.
